Kornheiser: ‘Gus Malzahn… is beating him now’: Possible defeat of Saban-backed 10-second delay rule discussed on ‘Pardon The Interruption’

Here’s Tony Kornheiser, on the official-ish backpedaling on what Twitter has dubbed “the Coward Rule“, on Wednesday’s episode of Pardon The Interruption: “I think it’s actually a victory for transparency. There was a small cadre of defensive-minded coaches… led by Nick Saban, or influenced by Nick Saban, who were trying to do something that was anti-innovation and anti-offense—and when it came to light, and the media pushed hard to bring it to light—and influence coaches, that people stood up and said ‘hold on the second, this doesn’t sound like a great rule.'”

“And I also think, if I mentioning Nick Saban, it’s a defeat for Nick Saban, and Gus Malzahn, who beat him in Auburn against Alabama, is beating him now it seems.”

Here’s what John Heisman thinks about the whole thing.
